This is the John Farnham version of this song.  He does it as a massive power  
ballad, which is how the singer in our band likes to play it. 
INTRO 
 x 2 bars 
verse 1 - Just piano (upper piano register) 
When I was younger, so much younger than today 
I never needed anybody’s help in any way 
But now those days are gone, Im not so self assured 
Now I find, Ive changed my mind, Ive opened up the door 
Help me if you can Im feeling down 
And I do appreciate you being round 
Help me get my feet back on the ground 
Wont you please, please help me 
verse 2 
And now my life has changed, in oh so many ways 
My independence seems to vanish in the haze 
But every now and then I feel so insecure 
I know that I need you like Ive never done before 
Help me if you can Im feeling down 
And I do appreciate you being round 
Help me get my feet back on the ground 
Wont you please, please help me 
BRIDGE 
verse 3 - Just piano (upper piano register) 
When I was younger, so much younger than today 
I never needed anybody’s help in any way 
But now those days are gone, Im not so self assured 
Now I find Ive changed my mind, Ive opened up the door 
Chorus 
  (WHOLE BAND COMES IN)

Help me if you can Im feeling down 
And I do appreciate you being round 
Help me get my feet back on the ground 
Wont you please, please help me
